Recommended Posts

This is my entry. I thought about Burma Banshee P40 but decided to safe it for a P-40 STGB. So it will be stang. ~Hope it could be as good as Warhawk 8-)

This should be good, shame nobody does a decent one in 1/48.

What about the Tamiya ones or the OOP Accurate Miniatures kits? I thought they were pretty good. Or the cheap ICM one that has looks of  the first one mentioned here.

 

Re the build zegeye; agree its going to look good with all that brass. Are you going to replace the canopy?

With a pleasure, but how?  Don't think there is some replacement...  Only I know is a Squadron for Hasegawa. But I don't think it will suite here without more surgery. Don't want this because I'm afraid that I will stuck with this for longer time. And I have a lot of projects that are stucked 8-(

 

And for the model. Some small work with the seat.

Nice choice and looks like you intend a lot of PE on this build and adding some of your own as well :thumbsup:

A nice choice for this GB, they normally go together quite well & look good when done. I'll be watching keenly.

Some precise work on display :thumbsup: But I am curious why you choose a black primer for an olive drab finish?

First of all I like to work with this black surfacer very much. And secondly I would like to try the "black basing" methode.

Although my skills aren't at the top level, I try to do my best, and always learn something new. This is what I've done with black basing methode.

As you can see on the far end of the right wing there was an paint blob....  So I have to repaint this panel....

And the final look is here.... I added some different shade of olive drab on the panel lines

Now the small parts and the decals....

Your method does certainly work in adding colour variations to the monotone paint scheme :thumbsup:

Rising temperatures stoppped a little my workprogress....  you can see here a reworking process of Tamiya bazookas... they are better than Revell ones, but have wrong mounting brackets for a Mustang. (they are comming from Tamiya Thunderbolt). In the middle are Revell bazookas. At the top are Tamiyas reworked and ready for my different Mustang. And at the bottom are this for the actual B version of Mustang in progress....

After an  unplanned brake.... I' m continuing my work on the Mustang. The bazooka tubes are ready, decals are on, bombs are done to.... so I think it is close to finish.

Looking well smart. I'm not normally a fan of black basing but yours is nicely subtle & looks rather good. :)

Agree with @stevehnz the black base technique you've used is very effective.

 

Very nice, understated build with good techniques all round. It looks great 👍
